Sadly the news in Israel is often full of terror attacks and threats of war. The only way to find comfort and confidence is to remember Who God is and what He has done for her in the past.
He turned the sea into dry land;
They went through the river on foot.
There we will rejoice in Him.
He rules by His power forever;
His eyes observe the nations;
Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
Oh, bless our God, you peoples!
And make the voice of His praise to be heard,
Who keeps our soul among the living,
And does not allow our feet to be moved.
For You, O God, have tested us;
You have refined us as silver is refined.
You brought us into the net;
You laid affliction on our backs.
You have caused men to ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water;
But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
Indeed, God has allowed Israel to go through very hard, even devastating times. But He has never forsaken her. The establishment of the State of Israel is proof of the truth of this Psalm.
PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS TO ISRAEL AND TO ALL WHO WILL WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.
